Reviews

This is a soaring account of the months that transformed a messy feudal squabble into Magna Carta, a document of transcendent historical importance in the English-speaking world. It is a reminder that, when Starkey flexes his historical muscles, he is a mighty impressive scholar. And his crisp storytelling, based around short chapters and rolling rhetoric, is extremely entertaining. - Mail on SundayI thoroughly enjoyed this book. Good history is descriptive, narrative and analytical. This is good history. Starkey tells a story. It is not new, but it's well told. - The Times
